on in the show. >>> rand paul doesn't see any way that obama care can work in its current state. speaking on fox news on sunday, he said you're going to have to pony up more preem yell premium dollars to get the very same services. >> we're paying through it through higher premiums and we're going to find out that more people will lose their insurance under obama care than i think will actually gain it. the republican plan is, freedom of choice, more choices, not less. obama care narrows your choices. >> and now ezekiel emanuel on fox news said that if you leak yo like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. it's simply going to cost you more to do that. >> look, if you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. this is a matter of choice. in all sorts of places you may more for certain -- to a wider range of benefits. >> emanuel went on to attribute the low number of people signing up for obama care to what he calls a lack of pr. he says the numbers will go up once the campaign is in full swing. >>> well, the deadline to enroll in obama care is just days
. >>> the obama administration is making a push to get young, healthy americans to sign up for obama care but as the numbers are very slow to pick up, the architect of obama care told our own chris wallace today, it's a lack of promotion, not the botched rollout that is to blame for low enrollment. >> no one has launched a big pr campaign to get these people signed up because of the problems with the federal website. we are about to launch a big pr campaign and that, i think, is going to persuade a lot of people to sign up. >> the white house may not have started its latest pr campaign but state exchanges are certainly looking to attract younger demos using racy ads like this one with internet means like this one like hey, girl, and cutouts of actors like ryan gosling. still, almost half of millennials say they are not going to sign up. joining me is a columnist for the washington times, charlie herd. the president has been promoting this thing for four long years with all kinds of things like wild promises and now one of his own obama care architects says he hasn't promoted it enough and

's rising enrollment numbers and to sell it to a still skeptical public. is obama care on the road to recovery? let's ask joe rag go, deputy editor dan and kim. so joe, has obama care turned the corner here, as the white house says. >> they'd love to make you think that. what they did was they picked a -- they made a deliberate political decision to fix the part of the website that consumers see but they haven't fixed the so-called back end, the information systems that transmits data to insurers about who is signing up for their products. so it's essentially like ordering something online and never having it go to the warehouse to deliver. >> so the sign-up numbers have improved -- >> but still not totally up to speed. >> they are pitching this 29,000 enrollment figure for the first two days of december. is that meaningful? >> look, they were looking for seven million people to sign up. even if you get 29,000 every day, you're still not going to hit that number. >> house ways and means member david camp put out a notice saying that what they need in fact to hit that seven million

'll be that. y'all know the word that i'm talking about. obama care. that's right. i said it and i'm not ashamed. and neither is president obama. because he knows that of all his victories, over two terms in office, his legacy is ultimately going to be remembered for this one single word. i mean, what do you call the president who rescues the u.s. auto industry? obama care. what do you call the president who finally eliminates osama bin laden? obama care. what do you call the president who ends don't ask, don't tell? say it with me. obama care! heard the one about the president who pulled us out of the greatest recession since the great depression? yep, obama care. and what about the one, you know, about the president who reduced drug sentencing disparities? obama care. stop if you have heard this one. a group of underpaid woman and the president who passed a pay equity law walk into a bar -- okay, you see where i'm going with this. short of bringing about world peace before he leaves office, the affordable care act will loom large in the president's legacy, as the singular accompl
care. a top maryland official in charge of that state's obama care exchange is reportedly resigning now. and this would be the first official to lose a job in light of the troubles surrounding the insurance exchanges. national correspondent steve sun somy joins me now from washington with more on the story. >> not only the federal obama care website that had its difficulties. some sof the state-run exchanges got off to a rocky start. rebecca pearce resigned friday. according to our affiliate in baltimore, some are suggesting she was forced out of office after two years on the job. in maryland, they signed up just over 3,000 people by november 23rd, and about a week later, only about 7,000 more had been signed up. the goal by the end of march is 150,000, so clearly, there's a long way to go. the lieutenant governor is saying things clearly did not go as planned with that website. >> everyone involved in launching the exchange is responsible, and that includes me. >> as for the federal exchange, officials are still trying to make it work better. and today on fox news sunday, a chief advoc

obama care website you hear so much about that had its difficulties, the state as well. rebecca pierce in charge of the troubled website run by the state of maryland resigned friday. according to our baltimore affiliates, some lawmakers are hinting she was forced out. the maryland website signed up just over 3,000 people by november 23rd and only 700 more people one week later. the goal by the end of march is 150,000. lieutenant governor saying things clearly did not go as planned. >> everyone involved in launching the exchange is responsible and that includes me. >> meantime republicans continue to point out the shortcomings of obama care. here is rand paul. >> we're for competition. we're for selling insurance across state lines. above all we're for driving premiums down. the problem under the old system, premiums were too high. under obama care, the premiums are even higher. i don't see any way obama care can work. >> one of the architects of obama care was pressed on another promise the president made that turned out to be true. >> the president said you had unlimited choice of any
fully obama care? >> to me there's an interesting thing here of what comes between those two points. if you look at the speech he gave on economic justice wednesday, clearly the president has big ideas, has a big agenda. he's not done with that. these are things he's discussed from the very beginning since he began running in 2007. to me what was interesting in watching your interview yesterday was when he talked about republicans. it's not he's completely resigned to the obstructionism, that they've presented, but i didn't get a sense of a lot of fight. he talked about being persistent. but i think if he wants to rally those segments of the electorate that robert just talked about, he has to be concrete in what he's asking people to rally behind. take some of these grand ideas that he talked about on wednesday that he's talked about before whether it's raising the minimum wage, expanding head start to get investment going. whatever he talked about, he has more credibility now with these new employment numbers and making it concrete. sending bills to congress and saying this is what

out that nearly a third of them went after obama care which of course is a nonstarter with democrats and on the other hand, senate has passed some bills like immigration reform that have crawled to a halt in the house. now congress has passed some major legislation. things like the violence against women act. overall, what is going on here is divided government with sharply divided politics. it means all of these folks up here have one major accomplishment they share. this is the least productive congress in modern history. back to you. >> all right, lisa dejourdan. thank you. >>> coming up, the focus of our debate for you with the political panel. can lawmakers stop playing the blame game long enough to get a little bit of work done? panelists will break it down. >> and our fourth question, what about the markets this week? and the economy. well, there is plenty to look out for. zane asher is at the new york stock exchange. zane? >> deb, this upcoming week on wall street, we will introduce a brand new airline. well, kind of. american and u.s. air will merge into the biggest airline

anything else he needed to do to make this rollout a success. look, obama care, said this before, is a good policy. the implementation is horrific. >> poorly executed. the nebraska senator who's now heading up all these insurance commissioners, he was telling me, i thought it was revealing, that they did wince at the time when the president said, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. i said, i don't remember you saying that at the time. he said, we did relay to the white house, i don't know who in the white house, that this was not feasible. there's a lot of liny covering here. i'm wondering if it's all part of the same story. of not keeping in contact with the health and human services secretary, the secretary not following up on warnings presumably from those in congress who were getting leery, something that could never happen. >> it was a complete failure to communicate regardless of how many meetings there were. to paraphrase judge judy, somebody didn't have their listening ears on because there was nobody listening to anybody. whether the information was getting put out t

. >> let the states test it. >> obama administration care rebound. the president defended the affordable care racket act. he told the republicans if they have a better plan, let's hear it. >> if you don't like obamacare, and i know you don't, you should explain how exactly you would cut costs and cover more people and make insurance more secure. you to the morning people to tell us what you are for not just what you're against. >> is this a diversion tactic. >> yes, no question they would rather have the media focus on that the republicans don't have a plan. you had 29,000 people signed up which was more than all of us. a hundred thousand in november so they're much happier about the way it is going. but they would love it the if the media pointed out that the republicans don't have a plan. >> this is a fire spiral crash. you hear tens of millions may be invalidated next year. >> >> fact is 5 million people have lost their health care. and you have not gotten to the issue that the doctors that are going refuse it. these people are not going forget that they lost their health care. in add

. health care salvageable to you? >> no, i really don't think so. i think obama care is still unworkable, unpopular, and unfundable. what this is is a program that has accelerated our path to a single-payer system even though the president denies this. harry reid's comment, i mean, that was a classic case of what are you going to believe, your lying eyes or me? your lying neighbors and their narratives about how hard it is to work into the program, how skyrocketing their health care kobss is under this new program. this is a case where repeal is the only logical way of avoiding a catastrophe. >> susan, does the president in this argument, and he's not going to repeal -- he's not going to let this law get repealed, does he have new juice because the website horror stories are trickling downward. the economy is looking like not great but better. does he gather some new steam from this? >> i think it's one of the cases where the reality will matter. obviously the website is working better for consumers but we don't know how well it's working for working with the insurers getting these peopl

meeting with katherine sebelius. she took responsibility for the obama care snafus. the white house has not said how many times sebelius did sit down face-to-face with the president. earlier i asked how this report reflects on the white house, the president and his management style. >> i was surprised this week when the president told chris matthews in an interview that he really didn't think he had to reflect upon his management style, everything was fine in the white house, the real problem was the fact that we have such large signatuagencies government, big bureaucracies, it's hard to get things down. he's the chief executive. he's had five years to address that issue if that's what he thinks. if he thinks a bureaucracy is a problem like this, why did he assign the health care issue to them? i think this president has many good assets, i think there are many good things about him but the management team does have left i think especially in recent times left much to be desired. >> and julian, do you have see this as a leadership issue? >> yes. it could be a defining part of his presid
